On Friday 19 August 2016 Meg Stephens from Perth City Swimming Club successfully swam the English Channel solo. Only one in five people who attempt the crossing ever complete it, and Meg’s efforts have made her the youngest WA swimmer ever to do so!
Meg finished the swim in an impressive 12 hours and one minute, after waiting in Dover for more than three weeks for the wild weather to subside. Congratulations Megsy!!!
